When a feature-packed camera that has been long awaited and 5 years in the making finally comes, there might be some amazing features that are overshadowed by the overall specifications of the camera. The a7S III is so far the first and only camera to feature Sony’s improved and more organized menu system and while it has really been improved in terms of the interface, there are still quite a few things that you might miss simply because of all the features that are packed into such a highly specialized camera.
Coming to you from commercial videographer and producer, Nigel Laxamana, here are some added features on Sony’s new a7S Mark III that you might want to know about and use when you get your hands on it. In the video, Laxamana talks about how to activate an alternative to a tally light on the camera that just might do the trick in terms of assuring the videographer that the camera is recording. He also shows how to activate the “Gamma Display Assist” feature that can improve your exposure monitoring when shooting in S-log or HLG with a live-view color space simulation. Lastly, he talks about an additional focus-tracking feature made available in the a7S III that shifts the auto-focus a certain way when the original subject leaves the frame.
